First Call for Papers

The Departments of Slavic Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the Universität Regensburg are pleased to announce the

Second International ''Perspectives on Slavistics'' Conference

The conference will take place in Regensburg, Germany, September 21-24, 2006.

The goals of the conference are to encourage the study of Slavic languages and literatures and to establish connections among scholars working in these areas. There will be three parallel sections, two focusing on literature and cultural studies, the third one reserved for linguistics. The linguistics section will have the honour to host the 6th Annual Conference of the Slavic Cognitive Linguistics Association.

Confirmed keynote speakers include: Greville Corbett (Universit of Surrey, GB), Catriona Kelly (New College, Oxford, GB), Renata von Maydell (Bonn, Germany), Georg Witte (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany).

Submissions from any scholar working on Slavic languages or literatures are welcomed, including those in Slavic departments, as well as in specialized linguistics or literature departments. We particularly want to encourage young scholars to participate in this conference. Papers will be considered on topics relating to the diachronic or synchronic study of Slavic languages and literatures from any theoretical perspective. Each paper will be allowed thirty minutes (including 10 minutes for discussion). The deadline for submissions is April 15th 2006 (abstract specifications see below).

Presentations should be in English in order to open the conference up to researchers working on non-Slavic languages and literatures. Beamers and overhead projectors will be provided.

The participation fee will be 50 euros (25 for graduate students and passive participants), to be paid in advance. Detailed information on payment options & deadlines and hotel accommodation will be provided by May 2006. The participation fee covers the abstract booklet, other conference materials, refreshments and snacks. A limited number of participants from economically disadvantaged countries may be allowed free participation upon application. Please include a motivated application for free participation when sending in your abstract. In assigning waivers priority will be given to graduate students and non-tenured scholars.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us for further details or questions (pos2slav.fak12.uni-muenchen.de).

Abstract specifications:

The abstracts should not exceed 500 words (plus an additional page for tables, graphs and references, if necessary). Please use Times New Roman, 12pt and make sure to use the international transcription in case you work on languages with a Cyrillic alphabet. Your abstract should present a hypothesis and outline your plan for defending that hypothesis, i.e. it should specify research question(s), an approach/method to the data, and obtained results. Each abstract will be reviewed by independent reviewers.
Please, send author name, title and text of the abstract in an attached file (MS Word). Submit your abstract to pos2slav.fak12.uni-muenchen.de by April 15th 2006. Notifications of the Organizing Committee's decisions will be sent out by May 31st 2006.
